Liberal Democrat Jo Swinson said: "It is a huge amount of taxpayers' money that is not warranted to be spent on this."
Here’s the full roll-call of honour of those Lib Dem MPs who did oppose the allowance:
Baker, Norman; Barrett, John; Brooke, Annette; Bruce, rh Malcolm; Carmichael, Mr. Alistair; Clegg, Mr. Nick; Farron, Tim; Goldsworthy, Julia; Harris, Dr. Evan; Heath, Mr. David; Holmes, Paul; Horwood, Martin; Howarth, David; Hughes, Simon; Huhne, Chris; Laws, Mr. David; Leech, Mr. John; Öpik, Lembit; Rennie, Will-lie; Sanders, Mr. Adrian; Stunell, Andrew; Swinson, Jo; Taylor, Matthew; Webb, Steve.
The full list from the division lobby of ayes and noes is available here.
It will be interesting to see if Jo chides Danny in public and also doesn't take the money she says is "not warranted to be spent on this".
Ming congratulated Jo on another successful hustle on the taxpayers
He's a hypocrite he is that one. Surprising I know but yes he is, he really is.
He also sticks it out in places where he is not MP.
